The Metroidvania Narita Boy will be receiving a Limited Run Games physical release on the Nintendo Switch in the near future.
Pre-orders for standard physical versions will open later this week on 12th November for $39.99, from the Limited Run Games website. There’ll also be a collector’s edition for $74.99 – which includes a poster, a cassette soundtrack, a techno sword pin and a floppy disk…yes, a floppy disk!
When Narita Boy arrived on the Nintendo Switch eShop earlier this year, we said it was a “digital utopia” – awarding it eight out of ten stars in our Nintendo Life review:
“Narita Boy joins a plethora of entertainment franchises that pay homage to ‘80s culture. But where others have failed, Narita Boy transcends its inspiration with exceptional world building, a complex yet thoughtful narrative, and stunning combat gameplay. It occasionally feels a little too vague and abstract in its structure, and ultimately this holds it back from being a true masterpiece, but if you’re longing for a great Metroidvania title, then Narita Boy is absolutely what you’ve been waiting for.”
